9:35 am
a lot different than a computer programmer. he can't expect to make the same coined of wages. we have an example of how it was drin overseas. garment business went overseas because wages got out of hand. if you are going to do that it is going to happen. if you don't like it or think about it. you don't know what you are talking about. i cite more than you can. >> let me bring in katy in this. there are not any minimum wage numbers overseas. i don't know what they are. and i don't think tla there are any in china and brazil. if they are. they are below where we are here. maybe we'll not drive the retail or fast food but other service jobsoverseas. >> the complaint is that we don't have jobs here in america.
9:36 am
but the fact is labor is cheaper overseas and youth unemployment here. minimum wage jobs in mcdonalds and entrow level position are necessary for high school and college students to get a to the in the work force. if you start raising that cost and making them more expensive, employees will not hiring then. there is a 17ercent youth unemployment rate. we'll see it go up. >> hd on, ju know. in your city alone, there is a walmart law where they want to increase the wage for walmart. there is a 34 percent unemployment rate in teens in washington d.c. and you box them outine more from jobs they need. >> wait a second, if you are talking about mcdonald, the average worker is 28. not teenagers.

they going to produce the goods. they will produce in china than here? >> and in case you haven't noticed. american manufacturing is finding it is more attractive than ever to go back to the united states and quality of workers and ease of distribution all helping america. >> and we are missing the concept of if you raise prices and minimum wage you have to raise prices to offset that costs. people will stop purchasing those goods whether at victoria secrets or mcdonalds. people are going to make them at home instead. >> that's not the point. minimum wage laws simply hurt the workers folks li juan want to help. and that is not the age or skill level. it is freedom. and in a fro country, you have the right to offer any wage and accept the wage. a as a low skill person whether 18 or 58.
